If they were a POS that information would get out or even be intentionally leaked out before the samples went out. IMHO no one is going to go through the process of sending out chips just to be ridiculed that they are way off spec upon testing. Maybe if they over perform they might look at the dramatic effect of independent performance measurements coming back from the testers. At any rate I would think they are going operate close to design and not under perform by any significant margin given the circumstances and the way this is unfolding.

See the positive side: practical specs could be even better!  Grin

I'm surprised there was nothing announced yet... Pretty sure precise numbers are known by now.

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

Why is there just no movement on havelock? Wink

It doesn't help the exchange has been broken for several hours. Orders only go to pending status and don't show up in the book as active.

Thing is: Everyone speculating on AM in the past few months basically made a bet gen 3 will work. As of now, this assumption/hope seems to come true. Still, it is already priced in. Mostly everyone has decided on which side they're standing. For the current state, AM is pretty hefty overvalued for a high-risk unregulated company (<1%/year!!!) and the latest dividends were even non-existent.
The only thing moving the price will be another major update from Friedcat and finally a significant increase of dividends.

You're evaluating it on your assumption of dividends which are highly unpredictable IMHO and not looking at the long term prospects of owning the stock. For all we know FC may develop the worlds first profitable fusion reactor with his returns....

As we witness AM being reborn from the ashes, should the stock remain just as it did remain after Gen 1 returns dwindled down to nothing; I suspect the company through maturity will not be forced into this cycle and we will see Gen 3 as a launch point for a robust industry. The ability to continually shave the ice cube on ASIC performance given the economic environment of Bitcoin has become a factor. Having an efficient ASIC design which is cost effective to construct may now be a tipping point particularly in an environment where people have been educated regarding the pitfalls of pre-ordering to fund R&D on someone else's false dream.

Any argument can be made for the future of the stock. It's what people perceive as the future profitability of the company that is used to determine it's price.

Past performance is not a reflection of future performance.

Since havelock is broken, I'll sell 38 shares @ 0.7 each.  Anyone interested?

Those are PCBs for testing the board
/Materials_and_pcbs_for_testing_demo_boards
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printed_circuit_board

Was thinking a bunch of wafers at first
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wafer_(electronics)

Either way it means good things when they weld them together to test out guess we will need to wait 2 days to see how it turns out

Looks like reels of SMD resistors and capacitors. At least the first 5 or so, can't see the rest.

Damn man, these days feels like ages  Smiley In the end I am happy that we have Rockxie around, at least now we have some second hand updates and photos for hungry shareholders, Friedcat doesn't care about PR

Yes. This looks like some reels of SMD parts. Could be anything from resistors, capacitors, diods and so on.

The paper reels ( the first ones you can see) are most likely resistors or capacitors.

Seems so. Announcements are always appreciated, but every chip designer seems to have received chips by now and I guess we'll see first 3rd party specs in the following days. I, for one, am not worried currently.
And I guess the second batch is in production right now and I believe it to be sent to the buyers in early may.

presumably asicminer is testing out the (not-yet-released) open-source PCB design info - which may require some revisions if the chip doesnt play nicely the first time around

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!

Why would FC need PCB boards?  Wouldn't that be the responsibility of whoever is buying the chips?

edit: I know I'm not knowledgeable on this subject.  Don't flame, just answer. Cheesy

He can need it for testing the chips and he can give out a reference design for chip customers.

So in reality, a customer wouldn't even need to design a PCB?  Anyone could simply outsource the work for assembly, toss them the design that already exists, and have a working product?  This seems too easy..

How do i order chips?   Cheesy
